Hungary is a wonderful place. For many people, Balaton Uplands is one of the most superior gems of the country.

This land – from Lake Balaton through the Valley of Arts, as far as Sümeg – transmits the romance of the provinces, the traditions and cultural memories of the past for both the local residents and the visitors, while hiding the opportunity of the permanent renewal in itself.

The local people are kind, hardworking and very good hosts. They accept anybody in their lives and homes. They let people look into the secrets, tricks and difficulties of the local farming.

The past few years have also proved that it is possible even for 60 settlements to hold together with cooperations getting stronger and stronger. It is unique, especially nowadays, when we are happy to be able to take our individual chances and cope with the challenges waiting for us in our rapid, hectic life.
